The Delta museum preserves all types of airplanes. Like the Northwest Waco 125 from 1928.
This is Delta’s only open cockpit and bi-wing plane. The airplane was donated to Northwest Airlines by a ex-pilot, Daniel Neuman in memory of his wife, Vona Jean Neuman. Until last year it has been hanging in the MSP airport since 1985. Last year it was moved down to the Delta museum.
The Spirit Of Delta
The Spirit of Delta was Delta’s first Boeing 767-232 aircraft. The project to purchase the aircraft was led by three flight attendants to raise $30 million from donations and employees. The Spirit of Delta was retired in 2006 but you can still see the plane at the Delta museum today.

After the museum tour we participated in a question and answer session with Shannon Holden, Delta’s Senior Vice President of Strategy & Real Estate as well as the SkyMiles team. They shared details on the investment in new and enhanced airports including ATL, LAX, JFK, and SLC.
Next stop is over to the social media lab in the belly of the beast.
